None of their last six encounters was won by the host nations, while the visitors celebrated after the final whistles in one of the last nine. One of Serbia last five clashes featured over 2,5 goals, as four saw both involved countries to score.
Russia lost 3:2 away to Turkey at the weekend, extending their winless streak to five games across all competitions.

Two of their last five meetings resulted in over 2,5 goals and three witnessed goals at both ends.
